Ragweed's Farm Dog HandbookRagweed's Farm Dog Handbook by Anne Vittur Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I ordered " Ragweed's Farm Dog Handbook" by Anne Vittur Kennedy and just finished reading this fun and colorful book.

There are repetitive lines that are always good for new readers or listeners to the story.

I cannot wait to share this with young readers and their parents.

River RoadRiver Road by Carol Goodman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Literary Fiction; Shattered Mourning and Murder

A librarian once spoke about "The Contract for Violence" that we sign when we engage in public discourse . Working, school, relationships; any activity where our participation involves reaping a portion of limited and finite resources. Some groups and individuals exert a presumed Manifest Destiny; an entitlement over the lives and well-being of others, leaving scraps for the less fortunate and broken, culminating in self-destructive behaviors, and more violence against their own tribes. This well written novel is a perfect snapshot of this phenomenon via an out-of-control vehicle of fiction. Bravo.
